Appendix of Amsterdam and Barcelona adventures.

We wouldn't go back home without visiting Gaudi's ongoing masterpiece: Sagrada Familia. This is the most impressive works of Gaudi's and which also involved with all the structural difficulties he faced and the errors he committed in other projects as well.  However, those difficulties are resolved here in this Holy family church. 

For me, I'd appreciate it as a grand gothic architecture instead of a holy church.

On me: Massimo Dutti white shirt with bow, Sandro leather pants with zip in front, H&M cardigan (past season), Chanel 08' rodeo drive, leather Converse with Joey Found (link here)  hand-embellished studs 

{PS. The day before we fly back to California that hubby and I finally crashed by jet lag. We were so sleepy in the afternoon walking around in Barcelona and so ready to go HOME!!} 

We met another lovely family in Amsterdam while we travel. Thanks to Facebook that we could meet new friends across the world. ^O^

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
